Wellington Hotel is a 3-star high-rise hotel on 55th Street and 7th Avenue, in Midtown Manhattan. Positioned right next to Carnegie Hall and a few blocks from Central Park, this historic hotel is one of the most booked in the city but has limited free WiFi and no on-site fitness center to consider as well.
The Wellington’s guest accommodations are classically appointed and create an atmosphere of relaxation and serenity, which makes it the perfect place to retire to after a long day in the Big Apple. Guest rooms offer amenities such as pay-per-view movies, a hairdryer, and voicemail. The professionally trained staff will make your next visit to the Big Apple a memorable and enjoyable experience.
Built in 1902, the 27-story hotel has a total of 618 non-smoking guest rooms (including accessible rooms). These start from 190 sq feet and go up to 500 sq feet for a suite. All guest rooms have a well-lit work area, flat-screen TV, Beekman 1801 bath amenities, and WiFi, which usually comes at an additional cost. Microwaves and refrigerators are featured in suites as well, though even the standard rooms come with views of the park or city as well.
The Wellington Hotel is within walking distance of Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, Lincoln Center, Central Park, Fifth Avenue Shopping, as well as world-famous fine dining. Guests are encouraged to indulge their culinary desires at the Park Cafe or the elegant, award-winning Molyvos, both of which are guaranteed to delight the senses.
There are no coffee or tea amenities in the rooms and no in-room safes. However, there are complimentary safe deposit boxes at the front desk. Room service is available from 6 am to 1 am every day.
Speaking of on-site dining, then the hotel has a Greek restaurant called Molyvos, which is located on the lobby level. It’s open from noon for lunch and dinner each day. Alternatively, guests can also drop by the nearby Park Café, which is open from 6 am to 2 am every day and offers breakfast, lunch, dinner, and after-theatre snacks.
Unfortunately, there’s no fitness center at the Wellington Hotel, which they recommend nearby venues. For printing and PC use, however, there’s a small business center; while souvenirs, snacks and sundries can be purchased from the hotel’s 24-hour gift shop.
Wellington Hotel also draws visitors from all over the world for its prime location, which is near Museum of Modern Art, Rockefeller Center, Times Square, and Broadway Theater, to name just a few nearby attractions.
Due to its size, location, and affordable rates, Wellington Hotel remains very popular among NYC tourists.
